Yummy pumpkin milkshake!

It's fall...the official "pumpkin everything" season! The kids have been clamoring for pumpkin rolls and pumpkin cakes and just everything pumpkin! Even milkshakes. Most especially milkshakes! I've been experimenting with a few recipes. Some were too strong, others were too weak. I need pumpkin flavor, but not overwhelming!  Finally, I came up with my own concoction:

PUMPKIN CARAMEL milkshake


Ingredients:
1/3 cup of pureed pumpkin
2 cups vanilla ice cream
1 cup milk
2 tbs brownsugar
a few dashes Pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
a few graham crackers
whipped cream to top 

Directions:
Put pumpkin puree, milk, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice and vanilla extract in blender. (for stronger taste you can add more pumpkin pie spice) Blend about 1 minute. Add ice cream and blend until smooth. That's it! Pour into glasses and top with a crumbled graham cracker and whipped cream. You can drizzle with caramel and top with pumpkin pie spice if desired.

This is oh so yummy and pretty darn easy to make. It's definitley the answer to these crazy fall induced pumpkin cravings! While we're on the subject of pumpkin though, check out last years pumpkin caramels recipe. Happy fall!
